María Moncerrate
The communal bank Grupo De Crédito De Colorado meets once a fortnight in Colorado, in the Montecristo canton. The area is known for its rich precolonial culture and for its handicrafts which are renowned both nationally and internationally. It is the home of the famous Panama straw hats.

This is where María lives. She is 27 years old and is married. They have a 6-year-old son who goes to school. Her husband works for a private company. María is a very determined woman who likes to earn her own income.

With the help of her husband she built a small shed where she rears pigs. She started off with very little and now has more than 80 pigs. She gets help with the pigs from her parents and siblings and pays them a salary. She keeps the young animals for a good while and when they are ready and have gained enough weight she sells them to traders who come to the house. She has had this business for more than 6 years and it enables them to get on in life.

The loan is to buy feed and medicines for the pigs. María has been in the communal bank for 2 years and she likes it because of the support she gets from the loans. Her dream is to provide the best for her son.
